How We Wasted Time at Work Before the Internet
How We Wasted Time at Work Before the Internet

Most of us remember the workday before the Internet. After I saw a coworker at her desk playing solitaire on Facebook we joked about how Windows’ Solitaire — and Minesweeper — were the main ways we wasted time before the web.

What else did we do at work before the Internet?

• We doodled. Now instead of doodling at our desk or in meetings, we grab our smartphones and play Flappy Bird or Angry Birds.

• We avoided long distance charges at home by calling friends and family at work.

• We faxed stupid jokes and photos to people across the country. We still do that today but no trees are harmed.

• We read newspapers. How quaint. And sometimes we even played the newspaper word search or crossword puzzles.

• We did more office pranks.

What are some things you did to waste time at work before the Internet?
